Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 Quad-Core CPU

Hello All. Here we are, less than 4 months after the release of their excellent Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors, and Intel is ready with a new animal -- a quad-core processor dubbed the Core 2 Extreme QX6700. We've taken the new QX6700 and put it through the wringer with a barrage of multi-threaded tests. Here's a quote from the piece...

"Today Intel is officially launching a new Quad-Core processor, formerly known by the company's internal code name, "Kentsfield". Kentsfield is the direct result of Intel's immense manufacturing and process technology prowess. Based on the company's 65nm manufacturing process, one of the very few fabs of its kind in high volume production at this time, the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 is an integration of two Core 2 Duo dual-core processors on a single substrate for a total of 4 CPU cores in a single LGA 775 socket."
